Algeria’s Serbian coach, Milovan Rajevac, has quit after players led a dressing-room revolt against him soon after a 1-1 draw at home with Cameroun last Sunday.
Algeria government television broke the news of the departure of the 62-year-old coach and an official announcement from FAF was expected after its meeting wednesday.
The players are understood to have openly blamed Rajevac for the disappointing 1-1 draw at home with Cameroun.
Reports from Algeria said former Ghana coach Rajevac, who took over Africa’s leading country team in June, met with FAF President, Mohamed Raouraou, on Tuesday and agreed to cancel his contract.
Nabil Neghiz and Yazid Mansouri are expected to be in temporary charge of the team for next month’s trip to Nigeria.
